LEAVE YOUR CHILD'S HAND

The book "Unposted Letter" deserves to be read by all of us. Mahatria, the author has written many beautiful chapters with which everybody can relate. He has touched some basic issues we all need to fix. But, I found one particular chapter interesting as the idea was new and should be understood by parents who are over protective towards their children.

As a person grows, his definition of respect also changes. For a seven year old child, if you as a parent will not drop him to school, if you won't buy him toys or if you won't go with him to park, he would feel you are not respecting him. He would feel that he is nothing to you as you are not giving your time, your care to him. But, this same treatment does not apply to a seventeen year old child because now, for him respect means something else. If you as a parent will be there for him wherever he goes or if you will spoon feed him, he would feel you are disrespecting him. You are not giving him enough space and fr…

FROM GOOD TO BETTER, BETTER TO BEST

There were two students who were studying in the same school and were in the same class. They were good friends too. But, there lifestyles were completely different. One was born with a silver spoon. Living opulently, he almost had everything. The other one was grievously poverty stricken. His father somehow managed to pay his annual fees. But, his will to study and to paint a bright future for him and his family was far more than his hardships. He studied assiduously, focused om what he had, did his best and in the end, life rewarded him and he ended up living lavishly. The rich lad, however, was not content even though he had everything. He kept thinking what others had and he did not, like he had luxurious cars but he wanted a bicycle like others. He kept comparing and ended up living in depression.



What is the moral of the story? The grass always looks greener on the other side. No matter how rich you are, your wants are never satisfied. You are not content with what you have on …

LOOK WELL TO THIS DAY

Look well to this day, For it and it alone is life. In its brief course Lie all the essence of your existence:
The Glory of Growth The Satisfaction of Achievement The Splendor Of Beauty
For yesterday is but a dream, And tomorrow is but a vision. But, today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

YOU START DYING SLOWLY......

You start dying slowly if you do not travel, if you do not read, If you do not listen to the sounds of life, If you do not appreciate yourself.
You start dying slowly When you kill your self-esteem; When you do not let others help you.
You start dying slowly If you become a slave of your habits, Walking everyday on the same paths.... If you do not change your routine, If you do not wear different colours Or you do not speak to those you don't know.
You start dying slowly If you avoid to feel passion And their turbulent emotions; Those which make your eyes glisten And your heartbeat fast.
You start dying slowly  If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love, If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain, If you do not go after a dream, If you do not allow yourself, At least once in a lifetime, To run away from a sensible advice....
